The two (who are costars in the gender-swapped Netflix remake of the 1999 teen romantic comedy “She’s All That,” tiled “He’s All That”) took to the stage on Sunday to present the award for the best kiss in a movie or TV show.
“We’d love to kiss for you guys right now. I mean, our new movie, ‘He’s All That,’ we’ve spent months practicing our technique,” Buchanan said.
“So we kind of know what we’re doing,” Rae chimed in before the two shared a kiss that lasted about four seconds.

While Rae and Buchanan got the crowd excited, it was Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline from the Netflix series “Outer Banks” who took home the award for the best on-screen kiss.
Some of the other nominees for the MTV award included Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor, for their kiss as Daphne and the Duke of Hastings on “Bridgerton,” and Sandra Oh (who plays Eve) and Jodie Comer (who plays Villanelle) for their kiss on “Killing Eve.”

One Twitter user included a clip from Rachel McAdams’ and Ryan Gosling’s iconic on-stage kiss from when the costars and former real-life couple won an MTV award in 2005 for their kiss in “The Notebook.”
“MTV, we want something like this not addison rae,” they wrote.

Even though their kiss at the MTV Movie and TV Awards might have only lasted a few seconds, fans can catch more of the “chemistry” between Rae and Buchanan when “He’s All That” premieres on Netflix in August.
While the original “She’s All That” revolved around popular jock Zack (played by Freddie Prinze Jr.) taking “nerdy” artist classmate Laney Boggs (played by Rachel Leigh Cook) to prom after giving her a makeover, the gender-swapped “He’s All That” switches it up a little by having Addison Rae play a teen influencer who gives a less-popular classmate (Buchanan) a makeover.
